Recent Federal Budget Proposal Hurts Students, Patients and America’s Ability to Solve Big Challenges

US Capitol BuildingDear Advocates,

Since your recent letters to Congress to protect federal research funding, we’ve had another major development in Washington, D.C.


This past Tuesday, President Donald Trump introduced his proposed budget for the upcoming fiscal year. In it, he proposes drastic cuts to the National Institutes of Health, funding that UC researchers use to develop medical breakthroughs, and eliminates $800 billion over 10 years from the Medicaid program, affecting California patients and hospitals. In addition, the budget proposal includes many other cuts to the education, research and health programs of importance to the university.

Hear directly from President Napolitano about the proposed budget’s impact and why your continued federal advocacy is critical to California.

Thank you for your continued support of UC.
